In the language of the Indians, the Comal Springs were called Conaqueyadesta, which means "where the river has its source." Comal is the Spanish word for basin, perhaps referring to the flat area at the base of a limestone bluff containing the springs.
The Comal River population of the fountain darter was completely eliminated by the 1950's drought when the river was reduced to isolated pools of water.
Most of the water that becomes Comal springflow originates with recharge far to the west of the Springs and moves through major flow zones in Medina and Bexar counties on its way toward New Braunfels (see Flowpath Map).
